Centrally located shrine, great to combine it with other sights in central Kobe. We were lucky to see it while a wedding took place, giving us a bonus attraction.

Its just similar to other Shrine. Nothing especial. If you are going to visit in Kyoto or have visited Kyoto, i dont think coming here is a must.

It's not a huge shrine but still worth a visit if you have the time. Very well maintained and peaceful. Good to relax here for half hour but can get quite crowded during early January when the locals visit to ring the bell for blessings.

Another shrine, as many you will find around Japan, this shrine is really close to the entertainment área of Sannomiya. You will be able to enjoy a nice architecture of the shrine.

It was beautiful. words can't describe it and no photo does it justice. A definite must see when visiting. Just be careful crossing the street it is a small but busy road.

Worth a look if you are in the area,but if you miss it-no great loss. Obviously significant to local Shinto people.

It's a nice shrine and there are descriptive placards in English. It's also close to Sannomiya. That was enough for me.

I was aware of the shrine but didn't plan to visit it with limited time; however we did stumble across it in search of other things, so stopped by for a look. In Kyoto, you can get "all shrined out" with so many there but in Kobe, this is not the case, so is also a perfect opportunity to see... More
